Fighters Biography

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I started in 2011. I watched the UFC fighters on TV and my dream was to be like them, really good muscle with fighting skills. I want to be sure that my family and friend will feel safety with me.

What ranks & titles have you held?

I’m planning to take the EFC heavyweight belt !

How did you get your fight name?

That’s a good question. When I started to train MMA, my weight was 93Kg with 201cm height. I was really skinny. My coach said that looked like pencil ( in polish: Kredka)

Favoured technique?

I like wresllings throws, it’s look really impressive during the fight.

Who is your hero?

I’d have to say Mike Tyson and his psychology for fights. In my opinion he was one of the most motivated fighters I ever seen.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

In addition to MMA I love eating. My favourite cuisine is Chinese and sea food. I’m a sales agent in a company that supplies indoor tanning products (solariums, cosmetics, etc). I think that I’m the tallest fighter in Polish MMA.

What does it mean to you to fight in EFC?

I’m really proud to fight in EFC. I never thought that MMA is so popular in SA. EFC is the most professional federation that I ever fight and I hope to stay in EFC as long as possible.
